Fermi problems for teaching mathematical modelling

Maths Jam Conference 2017 (12/11/2017).

I spoke about Fermi problems, how we use them to teach approximation in first year modelling and an approach to solving them that we use with our students.

I teach mathematics at Sheffield Hallam University and am a researcher focused on higher education mathematics educational practice. Find out more about Peter Rowlett. This website also houses lists of my publications and talks I have given.
